Mouldings by Paolo Marcuccetti©2010-2021
Set of parametric objects (PlugIns) Vectorworks® for the creation and management of corniches, frames, mouldings, handrails, wainscoting, millworks.
The moulding plugins are a set of tools that take advantage of the built-in Vectorworks “extrude along path” bringing an easy to learn user interface, a vaste parameter customization and a well furnished Moulding Library (brought here thanks to Matthew Swett who has converted to Vectorworks® polylines and polygons the collection coming from the New England Classic® Molding line).
Despite the “extrude along path”, you can easily edit your creations:
An exhaustive manual in PDF and EPUB format is available to download or consult to get info about installation, usage and customizations.
Note: these plugins comes both in italian and english localisations. You'll find both in the downloaded folder. Just use the language you prefer and follow the installation instructions in the relative PDF manual.
The new version works with Vectorworks 2019 (see note*), 2020 and 2021 and includes new features and new profiles
The dialog library has been fully revised.
All parametric objects shares the same set of variables regarding the profiles.
(*) Note on versions: Plugins for versions of Vectorworks prior to 2020 can no more be tested (from me), so they can not be updated to latest version (IV.5).
By popular demand, I have just released a Mouldings plugins DEMO version, so you can evaluate them all and, in case, proceed to buy.
The DEMO plugins do all what the full version does, but they have, of course, some limitations. Each time you change a parameter of a Mouldings object, a message shows up, reminding you that you are running the DEMO. You can exit this dialog clicking the link button to this same page (with the chance to buy) or clicking Close. The close button halts execution for 5 seconds, but after that, changes to the object are regularly applied.
Once you will buy the full version, I’ll send you the regular package. Then you’ll just have to replace the two folders above with the new ones and restart Vectorworks, no need to edit the workspace again, your saved works will recognise the new plugins seamlessly.
After the payment is confirmed, your download should start immediately.
Vectorworks 2018, 2019, 2020 users should replace the file library MouldingsLib contained in Moulding-Models/Cornices with the respective ones contained in the folder Libraries for older Vectorworks versions.
The MouldingsLib file is a standard Vectorworks file containing all the profile symbols used throughout all mouldings plugins.
In the downloaded library (Mouldings - Models/Cornices/MouldingsLib) the file has been saved as Vectorworks 2021.
In order for the plugins to load the libraries profiles, it has to be in the same version as the plugins are working on, therefore, if needed, it has to be replaced.
